The Fine Art of Small TalkAre you ready to improve your life skills by reading self-help books and talking about social and psychological matters that are important to you?

If you believe that to feel well and be happy one must develop a degree of self-awareness, and that learning is a lifelong process, you will find Palisades’ new book club quite riveting!  Each month, we will read a book about personal psychology and self-improvement.  

Our new library associate, Reza Saber, a journalist and professor at George Washington University, will be your host. Pick up your copy at the library, read it, and come to discuss your findings with fellow Small Talk Book Club members on the last Wednesday of each month.
